Propagation  Workshop

Turn End Trust is hosting a garden workshop on 'Propagation Techniques'. Come and learn how to propagate your own plants in this friendly and practical workshop. Ideal for those new to gardening or with some experience.

On Tuesday 15th August 10.30am — 1.30pm, in Turn End Garden, HP17 8BG.

Using Turn End garden to identify and collect plant materials, Jackie Hunt (Turn End's gardener) and Lindsey Engers (horticulturalist and garden advisor) will demonstrate and explain easy methods to propagate plants from your garden by techniques such as leaf, stem and root cuttings. Some unusual techniques such as using water and gel to grow cuttings, as well as propagating from succulents and houseplants, will also be explored.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and practice cuttings to take home. By the end of the workshop, you should be able to have some understanding of how plant physiology informs propagation methods, identify a selection of plants suitable for stem, leaf and root cuttings, have some knowledge of the process of taking a range of cuttings and understand which time of year to take them, understand suitable compost and containers as well as conditions for growing cuttings.

The fee is £25.00. Booking required
